Interior Signage is a key component in new multi tenant office or residential building, as well as in just about any public structure.
Eye-catching design is a primary consideration, as interior signage projects the image of the facility. But function is critical, too. Good interior signs immediately assist visitors in locating their desired destination, and they must provide valuable safety information about the facility as required bylocal building code. ADA compliance is another key consideration when deciding upon your interior signage.

The most commonly used materials are applique and photopolymer. Because of its manufacturing process, photopolymer signs are more durable and vandal resistant than appliqué signs. Applique signs, sometimes simply called engraved signs, are formed with layers of acrylic and laminates. Applique signs have some advantages over photopolymer signs, however – particularly when it comes to ADA compliance, as Braille lettering can be engraved to provide the required rounded tops.

Because there are many differences in the two materials, there are different methods for customizing photopolymer and appliqué signage. Certain font styles, graphic layouts, sign frames, and methods for engraving logos work better on one material or another.
